White Sugar #5 Futures Market News and Commentary

Sugar Prices Climb as Strength in the Brazilian Real Spurs Fund Short-Covering

May NY world sugar #11 (SBK19) on Monday closed up +0.32 (+2.56%) and May ICE London white sugar (SWK19) closed up +6.00 (+1.76). Sugar prices rallied to 2-week highs Monday after a rally in the Brazilian real to a 1-1/2 week high against the dollar spurred some fund short-covering. Strength in the real discourages exports from Brazil’s sugar producers. Commitment of Traders (COT) data shows funds in the week ended March 12 increased their net-short sugar positions to 126,026, a 5-month high. A rally in crude prices to a 4-month high Monday also helped to lift sugar prices since higher crude oil prices benefit ethanol prices and may prompt Brazil’s sugar mills to divert more cane crushing to ethanol production than sugar production, thus curbing sugar supplies. In addition, Petrobras raised Brazil's wholesale gasoline prices to 1.8326 reals/liter from 1.8235 reals/liter, which is positive for ethanol prices. Last Tuesday's data from Unica was supportive for sugar prices since it showed Brazil Center-South sugar production in the 2018/19 marketing year through February fell -26.45% y/y to 26.364 MMT, with the percent of sugar cane crushed for sugar production falling to 35.40% from 46.84% last year and the percent of cane crushed for ethanol rising to 64.6% from 53.16% last year. On the bearish side, India's Sugar Mills Association today reported that India sugar production during Oct 1-Mar 15 rose +5.9% y/y to 27.35 MMT.
